The community is invited to submit designs for a 96’ x 16’ mural.
The County is seeking creative designs that inspire happiness, fun, and whimsy. Concepts should use bold and bright colors, as well as incorporate the words “Brookneal, Virginia” somewhere in the design (this can be a prominent part of the design or in the bottom corner). More abstract concepts are preferred to murals featuring people or historical events. Submissions using graphic images, vulgar language, political themes, or religious imagery will not be considered.
The mural design will be selected by a panel of judges. Designs will be treated as “art inspired" by the final mural. If selected, the actual mural painting work will be contracted out to an artist through a Request for Proposal process following County procurement procedures. Contracted artists may adjust the submitted design based on space constraints, supplies availability, personal skillset, flow, overall aesthetics, and other factors.
Design submissions will be accepted through midnight on Sunday, April 24th. Email submissions in pdf format to Jordan Welborn at Ljwelborn@co.campbell.va.us or submit in person at the Patrick Henry Memorial Library located at 204 Lynchburg Avenue, Brookneal, Virginia 24528. Multiple submissions from the same artist are welcomed. For more information, contact Claude Dixon, Business Programs Coordinator in the Department of Economic Development at 434-332-9643.
